How could voting be more accessible? – Have your say

Tuesday 9 July 2024

The electoral commission would like to understand the experience of dyslexic people during the recent election campaign, to help them improve accessibility.

  • Was it easy to register to vote?
  • Was campaign information available in a format that was accessible to you?
  • How easy was it to vote in person or by post?

Their focus is to understand how accessible the information, instructions and process was and what you think can be done better.

The survey is anonymous and will be used for research purposes only. All information you provide will be treated in strictest confidence and it will not be possible to identify any individual in the published results. You can read the Electoral Commission’s privacy notice here.

The survey is open until 19 August.

Accessibility of elections

“Everyone should be able to register and vote without facing barriers. They should be able to vote on their own and in secret.

While there have been significant improvements, we know there is still more to be done to improve the voting experience for disabled people.

Their voting rights are not always communicated in an accessible way, some do not have the support they need when registering to vote or voting and others face barriers when they go to a polling station or vote by post.” The electoral commission
